Please Note that IT support for CCMB and DCM&B and the Bioinformatics Core is now being provided through the MSIS Solution Center. The IT professional staff from CCMB is now part of that team. We are currently still using CCMBemail@example.com to route trouble tickets for desktop support, device support and other linux and server computer issues. MSIS Solution Center will provide Desktop support to Palmer Commons. Eventually we will phase out the CCMB-Help email address.
Need IT Help?
When you send an e-mail to CCMB-help it will be logged into our help desk software and all IT staff will be forwarded a copy of your help request.
